Rashida Jones made headlines this week by calling for John Travolta to come out as gay in the wake of alleged affairs with male masseuses.
Earlier this week Jones was promoting her new movie 'Celeste and Jesse', and conversation had strayed on to the singer Frank Ocean, who recently came out, her writing partner Will McCormack told website SpinningMatters.com: "There needs to be, like, a professional athlete that comes out."
Jones, who's the daughter of legendary music producer Quincy Jones, added: "And a movie star! It's time...Like John Travolta? Come out! Come on. How many masseurs have to come forward? Let's do this."
She's not the first to allege that Travolta may be gay, after all the cartoon series South Park ran an entire episode which none too subtley alleged that Travolta was secretly gay, constantly telling the 'Grease' and 'Saturday Night Fever' star to "come out of the closet".
However where Jones seems to have overstepped the mark is in telling the star to come out, as many think that whatever one's sexuality, it is a private rather than public matter.
Jones admitted as much, retracting her remark, tweeting: "Made a thoughtless comment about John Travolta. I sincerely apologize. Nobody's personal life is my business."
In the interview Jones had also intimated that the reasoning behind Travolta not coming out, if he were to be gay, was due to career considerations, saying: "People are so precious about their careers."
Perhaps Jones should've stuck to promoting her movie!
